Captain America was pretty well-known before the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but there’s no denying the fact that the movie franchise launched the character to an even higher level.


People really enjoy the character’s journey and his movies, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that he’s become beloved.


More fame means more questions, however, and people are curious about the Star-Spangled Avenger. So, here are all of the answers to your Captain America questions.

Who Plays Captain America?

In the MCU, the first actor to play Captain America was Chris Evans. Evans portrayed the character of Steve Rogers (Captain America) in Captain America: The First Avenger, and he would play the character until Avengers: Endgame.


The next actor to take up the mantle was Anthony Mackie who plays the character Sam Wilson.


In fact, Mackie is set to star in Captain America’s next movie, Captain America: New World Order.

How Old Is Captain America?

This question is about Steve Rogers, and it’s a complicated one. During WWII, Rogers was frozen for decades. To make things more complex, Rogers would end up traveling back in time and spending a good chunk of his life there.


A lot of people have tried to use math to figure it out, but the answer became a lot clearer because of the Avengers: Endgame script.


According to cinemablend.com, the script says Rogers is 112 years old at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

How Strong Is Captain America?

Rogers was injected with something called the Super Soldier Serum, which enhances his body. He can run faster, jump higher, and he’s stronger than the average human. He’s not going to beat The Flash in a race, and he’s not going to beat The Hulk in an arm wrestling contest.


However, he can outperform even the best Olympic competitors in any sport without trying. But back to the question.


Short answer: really goddamn strong.


In Captain America: Civil War, we see him kick a car with enough force to make it move. Later in the movie, he prevents a helicopter from flying away by holding it down. Not really things a normal human can pull off.


Sam Wilson refused to take the Super Soldier Serum, so he’s not as strong as Rogers. But he makes up for it by using his wings.

What Happened to Captain America?

Let’s assume that this question is asking what happened to Steve Rogers after Endgame. If that’s the case, then this is an unanswerable question. The MCU has made Roger’s fate purposefully vague.


It would make sense if they bring him back, and it would make sense if this is the last we’ve seen of the character. They closed the door on the character but left the window wide open.

When Was Captain America Created?

The character was created in 1941 by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. He made an unforgettable impact with the cover alone; it depicts Captain America punching Adolf Hitler right in the face.


A lot of people might think that Stan Lee created the character, but that’s not the case. However, he did bring the character back after he had been gone for years. Stan Lee would re-introduce Captain America to comic books fans by adding him to the Avengers team in 1963.

How Many Captain America Movies Are There?

As of now, there are three Captain America movies with a fourth one on the way. If you’re confused about what order to watch them, here’s a quick guide.


Steve Rogers might be out of the MCU (at least, for the time being), but Sam Wilson is still carrying the mantle. So, Captain America’s adventures are far from being over.
